FlexiFab Project - Breakthrough in Friction Stir Welding through an automated robotic system

FlexiFab project is comprised of a transnational consortium of ten leading European partners in metal fabrication, of which TRA-C industre is the only French representative. The project’s purpose is to develop a flexible FSW system capable of automatically fabricating complex structures from a range of aluminium alloy grades and thicknesses in the transport sector.
On the 31st October 2016 FlexiFab project has finished when it has achieved its stated goal, providing clear advantages for SMEs aiming to achieve accurate robotic friction stir welding (FSW). After three years of research, the partners are able to develop an automated robotic system to enable welding of aluminium components and parts, which provides key competitive advantages to the (SME-dominated) European metal workers and fabricators, by providing a cost-effective method of fabricating aluminium structures.

Details of the Project's achievement can be found at http://www.flexifab.info/publications.
